, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result
, and we have some projections to make here, george. california, we are ready to project for barack obama now. of course, the biggest democratic prize but got over 60% of the vote in '08 and ready to project washington state, a blue state for barack obama. idaho, that will be for governor romney. solid red state. that was also a big state for john mccain four years ago, and hawaii, his home state, that would have been a big disappointment. >> no chance that was going to happen. >> for barack obama but it certainly did. one more state before the polls close. >> let's go back to jake tapper and david muir with the campaigns. jake, let me start with you, clearly the excitement is starting to build inside the obama headquarters. they sense something is happening. >> reporter: indeed, george. president obama said earlier today that he could see this election spilling into tomorrow, but it does not seem right now that they think that's going to happen. you have all sorts of indications that president obama is getting prepared to come here to the mccormick center and we have all sorts of indicat
jersey as cokie pointed out but also places like california which are states that he would have won anyway but there was so much organic enthusiasm for barack obama in 2008 that he won -- that a lot of people turned out even in deep blue states where their votes, of course, didn't count, they turned out in mass numbers. the president's people knee this yearhat's not going to happen. so in terms of the overall national popular vote, if you think about red states and blue states where neither campaign is trying to turn out the vote, the blue states like california and new york for various reasons the president's numbers won't be anywhere near as strong as they were in 2008 whereas in the deep red state there is's so much antipathy towards the president that people will turn out in those states even though they are deep red states. they'll turn out the cast a symbolic vote against barack obama. so that's one thing that skews the popular vote by conceivably on election day towards romney more than people are necessarily expecting >> i think that's absolutely right. the red states are re
california, mayor, you know, i thought this race -- i'm going to say -- it was like the west greenwich village got the vote for figure. same-sex marriage, marijuana, raise taxes to pay for education. this is the most liberal electorate i have seen out there since lbj's day. your thoughts quickly on what happened tuesday. >> well, i think that what happened tuesday is the republican party literally gave it away. they have within obviously succumbing to whatever was required from the tea party for so long that they have gotten out of step with who the people are, what the people care about, and why the people would be motivated to vote. they didn't do a job of selling the republican party with anything anybody could support. >> okay. what's the suppression thing? we all know usually historically suppression means usually directed at the minority vote. we will make it difficult for you to vote. we will -- what do we call it? i can't remember the old terms. you had to pay to vote. >> pay to vote. >> poll tax. and what they call literacy test, some question in greek. some incredibly complic
that they will get out to vote on election day. >> brianna keeler in hollywood, california. and we'll go back to hollywood, florida, when the president starts to speak. >>> all right, meantime republican mitt romney is conceding nothing to the president. earlier he spoke to voters in the democratic stronghold of cleveland, ohio. no republican candidate has ever won the white house without winning ohio. and romney expects to continue that streak. >> if you believe america should be on a better course or if you're tired of being tired, i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one. when i'm elected the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. >> this was the second of four events romney had scheduled for today. next up for the republican candidate is pennsylvania. so america has 50 states, but it's the key battleground state where is the race just might be decided come tuesday. right now cnn estimates that nine states shown here on the make or break states. president obama o
. >> yes. hold off. or go to california and get a prescription. >> thank you. >>> both parties predicted victory on election day. but for mitt romney something went wrong on the way to 270 electoral votes. we're going to do the math to see what happened. john king is standing by. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone.

out the stops. and we have live team coverage for you this morning, phil keating is down in california, and we start with mike tobin in columbus, ohio, many still say voters there, mike, will decide of course, who actually wins this election and how it comes back to ohio. >> right. >> certainly does, that's why you have the candidates making the mad final dash in the buckeye state and both of them and the first lady made appearances yesterday. the obama campaign goes into the home stretch enjoying a significant lead in early voting returns, but the romney campaign says it's not as significant as the lead he held over john mccain in this same time frame. they believe they can make up the difference on election day, so, you have both sides going into the home stretch here extremely energized, the ground game, microtargeting of voters, personal contact is unlike anything you've seen in previous campaigns, we caught up with the group, americans for prosperity as they were mobilizing en masse and heading out into the neighborhoods. generally what you see with all of these door knock efforts
but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher
of the states that were scared, were not hard hit or some states as far away as california, they have pledged to get the equipment and cruise here into new jersey and new york and connecticut as quickly as possible. one of the things we have been able to do, to give you a sense of how this is an all hands on deck approach, we are able to and c-130's, military transport planes, to move assets and personnel to speed up the process of getting power as soon as possible. our first party is water filtration plants and other critical infrastructure in the state. for that, we have to move some generators, and we have a ship that can help to move assets around the state as well. we are going to be working with governor christie's office and local officials to identify what are those critical infrastructures, how we can get what is needed as quickly as possible. a couple other things we are concerned about. as power starts coming back on, we want to make sure people can get to work. there are a lot of folks in jersey who work in new york, in the city, and other places where transportation may be hobble
among men. joining me now for a look at the final stretch of this close race, california senator barbara boxer. senator, thanks so much for joining us. the gender gap has been a big issue, the women's vote has been a big issue among voters throughout this campaign. let's talk about the gender gap. the president has sort of narrow lead among women. it's no longer the double-digit lead that he had. but is this enough for him to carry him, despite the disadvantage that he has with male, men voters, especially white men? >> first of all there are more women voters than men voters. so when he's leading women by eight and romney is leading men by seven, i think the math works in our favor. but here's the other interesting statistic -- among the undecides, the few that are left, most of them are women. and i think as women look at this, whether they're number one issue is jobs, and they look at the latest jobs reports, do you know that you probably do, that barack obama, under his leadership, we've created more private-sector jobs in the last couple of months than george w. bush in eight years?

democratic state. california used to be part of a so-called republican lock. so, you know states change. any given point they're going to be some small subset of states where it is closely argued but over time i think maybe all the states get a chance in the spotlight. jenna: change is the only constant, right? >> exactly. jenna: imagine an election about issues. >> we can't have that. jenna: we have a lot more to talk about. we already do, walter, great to have you on set with us. jon? jon: well it is all about the swing states in the race for the white house. we are now minutes away from president obama's rally in wisconsin. you're looking live at madison, wisconsin. guess who is on stage, the boss, bruce string steen. this comes amid controversy over comments the president made in another battleground state. telling voters there voting is the best revenge. governor romney has an answer to that, we'll take a fair around balanced looks coming up i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my

not hard hit, or some as far away as california, they have pledged to start getting equipment, crews, et cetera, into new jersey. we were able to get c-17's, c- 130's, military transport planes potentially to move assets, personnel, to speed up the process of getting power up and running as soon as possible. our first priority is water filtration plants and some other critical infrastructure. for that, we have emergency generators. we have a navy ship that has helicopters that can move assets around the state as well. we are going to be working with local officials to identify those critical infrastructure and how we can get what is needed as quickly as possible. a couple of other things we are concerned about, as power starts coming back on, we want to make sure people can also get to work. a lot folks in jersey work in new york come in the city, and in other places where transportation may be hobbled. one of the things i mentioned is the possibility of us using federal assets, and military assets as well as taking inventory of the country that can be brought in so we can help people ge
and no state income tax and look at california as a case study they've lost 350,000 people to texas alone in the last 10 years. texas is growing, california is a disaster. a case study in disaster. >> congressman ryan, a hance to jump in. >> i think it's difficult to make a comparison between the oil bust, which is a commodity based product which can get caught up in different complications, versus the auto industry. i think it's a difficult comparison. but the auto restructuring package has worked and it's benefiting hubbard, ohio, and other areas where many people who work at general motors benefit from that. so it as the position on chinese steel that the president has taken that has benefited youngstown and gerard and many other people who work in that area. i take issue with him saying there's a lack of federal resources in texas. nasa has made huge investments in texas. many businesses in texas benefit from investments in the united states military. throughout the entire state of texas, i think if you look at many of the universitys in texas, they get a bode load of money from the r

they will continue to have seen a power. darrell issa the congressman from california in my view will exercise that to a greater degree. you will see a lot of intense followup on stories solyndra-like crony capitalism. it will make it hard for him to do anything. >> i think it's likely. if you were making predictions today you would say it is likely republicans will maintain control of the house. given that the president will be in a second term that we are going to face an immense fiscal challenge going forward in terms of the deficit. i think one more legacy point i would raise is the president has spoken about doing something about the pressures on the middle class. the growing gap between high-end earners and people getting left behind and that's why he talked about the investments he wants to make in education. one of my great hopes would be that he would be more open to taking risks, getting some flack from the teachers unions and do something about the quality of american schools. that's something that would move my heart. megyn: do you think he's likely to be more bipartisan or will he
. there have been strikes in oakland, california, and at the airport. a big demonstration planned for los angeles international airport in the next 24 hours and all of this together, means that the unions are flexing their muscles. megyn: are they feeling emboldened? >> not exactly. they wanted to get barack obama reelected. continues but governments continue to cut the most important part of organized labor, government worker unions. the republicans are in control of 24 governorships and legislatures where they have total control. they are trying to fight for their survival. megyn: if they park in the wal-mart parking lot and take up space as a people have to circle more, people are not going to be happy. all right, gentlemen, thank you. interesting to think about intervening with this. one of israel's papers making the case for how the gaza is the opening round of israel's coming war with iran, this is strategic by israel and beneficial to it in taking down iran's nuclear program. we will explain coming out. in a fascinating new theory suggests the murder of nicole goldman simpson could

california brother was praying for the day when medicare kicked in. he had no coverage and couldn't afford to buy it. so when you extend the medicare eligibility age, i clearly want to fill that gap with coverage, affordable, accessible health insurance for those who were in their 60s and are going to need that coverage even though medicare isn't officially onboard. >> is that going to cost more money? we all want to make sure that people out of work don't die of heart attacks because they don't have health insurance. we're not talking about expanding programs, we're talking about how we save medicare and medicaid because both of those programs are not only going bankrupt, they're going to bankrupt this country. how do we do that? you're telling us what you want to do to maybe add a new program. what do we do to save the existing programs we have from bankrupting the country? >> one thing is obama care, as much as it's been kicked around during the course of the campaign. the notion that we're going to have everyone in america under the protection of health insurance is a good one. and it
